Trout hit a solo homer in the fourth inning before adding a two-run double in the sixth. The home run was his 14th of the season, and Trout has 47 RBI and 47 runs scored. Both rank inside the top 10 in the American League, and his .302/.409/.540 line is nothing to sneeze at, either.

Mike Trout (thumb) is in Monday's lineup against the Twins.

Trout gave the Angels and fantasy owners quite the scare when he was hit in the right thumb by a pitch on Sunday, but fortunately he only suffered a contusion. He'll serve as the designated hitter on Monday, but should return to the field soon enough.

Mike Trout was diagnosed with a right thumb contusion after X-rays came back negative on Sunday.

Trout was lifted from Sunday's game after getting drilled by a pitch from Indians reliever Tommy Hunter. Thankfully, he appears to have avoided any major injury and should be able to return to the lineup in a day or two.

Mike Trout was forced to leave Sunday's game in the eighth inning after getting drilled in the right wrist area by a pitch from Tommy Hunter.

Baseball fans and fantasy owners alike must now hold their collective breath until we learn of the X-ray results that he's presumably heading for right now. Trout went 1-for-4 with a pair of walks before departing and is hitting a blistering .309/.415/.543 on the season with 13 homers, 44 RBI and nine stolen bases. We'll pass along any updates as soon as they become available.

Mike Trout had a strong game with three hits and his 13th blast of the season on Wednesday.

The Angels got hammered but it was not Trout's fault. He netted two runs and two RBI to help him climb into the top 10 in the majors in both categories. He improved his slash line to .309/.413/.553, which is very close to his career line. You are getting exactly what you expected when you drafted Trout this spring.

Mike Trout reached base in four out of his five plate appearances in Friday’s win over the Pirates.

Trout went 2-for-3 with an RBI single and also drew two walks. He’s now batting .318 on the year and ranks second in the American League with a .426 on-base percentage. Ho-hum.

Mike Trout was removed from Sunday's victory over the Orioles after rolling his ankle.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia downplayed the issue and said that Trout's exit was purely precautionary, and likely wouldn't have happened had the game been close. It's unlikely that he'll be forced to miss any time.
May 22 - 6:42 PM

Mike Trout went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and three RBI in Thursday's win over the Dodgers.

Trout finished the four-game series against the Dodgers having accumulated seven hits and six RBI. He capped off the torment of his California brethren with an RBI single in the first inning, a solo home run in the third and an RBI fielder's choice in the sixth. Trout is hitting a typically robust .327/.416/.588 with 10 homers, 31 RBI and three steals over 153 at-bats. He vowed in the offseason that 2016 would see him bump up his steal numbers, but he has attempted just four steals on the season.

Angels GM Billy Eppler said Wednesday that he's received zero trade offers for Mike Trout.

With the Angels sitting four games under .500 and lacking the kind of pitching necessary to compete in a feisty American League West, there has been speculation that Anaheim's front office might be more open than ever to Trout trade proposals. But there haven't been any discussions on the topic, internally or with other teams. "None," Eppler told the Los Angeles Times. Trout would fetch a massive package of prospects that could help spur a rebuild in Anaheim, but he's 24 years old and on a relatively team-friendly contract through 2020. We'd bet against him putting on a different uniform this year.
May 19 - 11:38 AM

Mike Trout went 3-for-4 with a homer, a walk and three runs scored as the Angels routed the Dodgers 8-1 on Wednesday.

Trout is hitting .359 with four homers, 14 runs scored and 15 RBI in 64 at-bats this month. Tonight's game was the 22nd time since 2012 that Trout has scored three runs in a game. Miguel Cabrera is next on the list with 16 such games.
May 19 - 1:36 AM

Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Saturday's loss to the Rays.

Trout and C.J. Cron combined for five of the Angels' seven hits. The outfit did not have an extra-base hit on the evening. With the two singles, Trout is now hitting .313/.395/.571 with seven homers, 23 RBI and two steals over 112 at-bats.
May 8 - 12:43 AM

Mike Trout finished 4-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in a losing cause Monday against Milwaukee.
